By removing this from your source code actually violates and nulls your license agreement so we don't recommend that you attempt to try this. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Hi,

 

While that's true, it doesn't mean that our copyright or licensing may be violated by removal of any portion of our core code or language. I'm sure you respect our rights and understand this important licensing term.

It seems i wouldn't be violating your copyright or license but you advertising your product, that i have purchased under a GPL license, on the site that i am going to deploy to my clients.

 

i have the plus dev and i am kind of upset.... we wanted to start including pagelines in the wordpress solutions that we offered to our clients but we are having second thoughts.

 

Glad to hear your comment

As I mentioned, it's part of our protected language.

 

I understand if you don't want clients to see this, but isn't it better that you let them know you're using the very best... the Tiffany of premium WP frameworks?  Since PageLines is a framework, not an off the shelf theme, it provides the platform for your customization.  In essence, even though PageLines is a framework, it still requires your customization to make it look as your clients desire.

I apologize if I offended you.  My response was simply intended to help you provide an explanation of why the term you want removed is there if you're developing for client sites.

 

No insult was intended.

Dear Pagelines friends,
 
After further internal review following the above posts, we have decided to drop our idea of delivering the pagelines framework with the wordpress solutions we offer to our clients.
 
we have purchased the developer edition paying 300 dollars, with the intention of including the framework as part of the wordpress solutions we offer but we cannot deploy a site to our clients with the following unremovable "credit" in the opening of the head section:
 
<!-- Site Crafted Using PageLines v2.4 - WordPress - HTML5 ( dev ) - www.PageLines.com -->  
 
We also think your terms of service is very confusing and not completely gpl, and that it violates the wordpress gpl license that all the software using the wordpress engine should have.
 
we have a precise philosophy here and we always support good developers with donations or fees but in this case scenario we feel we are being forced into something we do not agree with.
 
As a result of this consideration and of your policy "30-day guarantee on all purchases" we would like our money back. We subscribed on january 15 and are now requesting the refund on January 28th.
 
We would also like to bring this issue to the attention of our friends at wordpress to see what they think about it.
 
Please let us know where we should direct our cancellation request.
 
Thank you,
 
Jack

The forums are not the place to discus your account or refunds, we have a help desk for that, just email hello at pagelines dot com.

 

Our framework is fully GPL compliant and you are perfectly within your right to edit it to your hearts content.

 

I think Rob was getting a bit confused, and I apologize on his behalf.

 

We just dont provide support for 3rd party edited code.

Simon,

 

 

To be absolutely clear in regards to your response - are you saying that it is legal and acceptable to remove the following credit line from the head :
 
<!-- Site Crafted Using PageLines v2.4 - WordPress - HTML5 ( dev ) - www.PageLines.com -->  
 
Please confirm that is in accordance with your terms and conditions.
 
Thank you

The terms page states you may not remove copyright notices.

 

That line is not a copyright notice.

Sorry to reply to an older topic, but Simon does this mean we 'can' remove that text from the header?

Hello - sdawkins 

 

to quote Simon above 'Our framework is fully GPL compliant and you are perfectly within your right to edit it to your hearts content.'

 

So yes you can remove this from the Header :) 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

I've tried asking in personal messages and no one has gotten back to me.

Where do I go, what file do I edit! to remove the "site Crafted comments in the <header>? I must be missing something simple.

You will need to likely use a hook, as editing the lib.head.php file is not recommended and will void support. Also, I am not sure as to why you would want to remove it, as it's only purpose is for debugging.


Please search our forums, before posting!

I guess it seems important to reiterate what was stated above by Simon:

"Our framework is fully GPL compliant and you are perfectly within your right to edit it to your hearts content"

There is no 'hook'

 

The source comment is added for 1 reason, so when you ask for support our staff can see what software you are using and answer quickly. If you insist on removing it it means we then have to dig deeper to find out what version of whatever you are using.

 

Like I said before, its up to you if you remove it you need to dequeue 'pagelines_head_common' from the 'pagelines_head' action. The create you own action that includes all the other stuff that pagelines_head_common has in it.

 

Alternatively take 10s to search google for a plugin that strips html comments on WordPress.
